    modifying date field to DAY() messes up all the formatting

    Chris Rasmussen

      This is driving me a little crazy.  I'm just trying to do a simple crosstab report with the date (Month day, year) spelled out in the first column.

       

      Why does Tableau make such a mess?  example1.png

       

      When I modify the day(production date) to be the one that spells out the day (March 16, 2013), it gets ugly.

      What happened?  Why are my column headers at the bottom?  Why do I have 3 inches between my dates?  (I just clicked on the right hand drop down of the DAY(Production Date) column and chose the 'Day' option that had the Month day, year example.

       

      Thanks!
